The EDX-7000P (range of detected elements: Na to U) and the EDX-8000P (range of detected elements: C to U) now feature enhanced safety mechanisms to prevent X-ray leakage:The spectrometers feature a control function that blocks the generation of X-rays in case of a malfunction during operation and startup. To perfect the existing instruments, a locking mechanism has been incorporated in the main units, in order to enhance the monitoring system that works when the lid is opened or closed.
The systems measure the energy (keV) and intensity of the generated fluorescent X-rays to determine the type and content of the elements comprising a sample. They are applied for non-destructive elemental analysis of solid, powder, and liquid samples while offering excellent maintenance performance.
The EDX-7000P and -8000P can be widely used by electronics and automobile manufacturers in Europe. Furthermore, they are suitable for general screening applications, for analysis of impurities in pharmaceuticals, in foods and in polymer materials. In combination with Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometers, the EDX-7000P and EDX-8000P deliver a powerful package for the identification of contaminants.
* EDX-7000P and EDX-8000P are sold only in Europe.
